Faith’s mother has rheumatoid arthritis and suffers from heart disease so she needs constant care.

Faith sings because she feels that music is her release when she feels helpless and overwhelmed.

Faith is used to singing in church. She spoke about her faith and how important it was as part of her journey for The Voice.

“It really does help me push through,” she said. “It’s such a new experience, it’s such a new stage especially being in the secular world, so I’m really praying to God to help me through things that I don’t know.”

Faith dedicated her blind audition to her mother.

“I just had to eliminate the crowd and the coaches out of the room and my mind – and just sing to my Mum. It was the only way I could have gotten through the song.”

Her whole audition, including her song of choice, seemed to be one huge roller coaster of emotions.

“It won’t feel like the voice Australian if there isn’t any Islander contestants, I love it so much for the representation. Our Pacific Islander are finally not keep our talents to ourselves and sharing it. ” says a viewer named Blanca Dior Dior.

That’s because Faith is of Samoan-Australian blood.
